May the souls of all our departed heroes continue to rest in peace. We will continue to strive to ensure that their sacrifices on our behalf will never be in vain.

I am reiterating my directives to the Service Chiefs regarding greater synergy and cooperation, and also a more sustained focus on intelligence gathering and interpretation. I am confident that we will see significant improvement in our security situation this year.

The welfare and wellbeing of our troops will continue to be a priority. We are investing heavily not only in weapons and equipment for their use, but also in provision of housing, medical care and other areas of welfare. And we will continue to make resources available.

As we commemorate #ArmedForcesRemembranceDay, let me pay tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of all the men & women of our Armed Forces who have paid the supreme price for our unity, peace and security. We also salute our troops currently engaged in internal security operations. https://t.co/dR0Vgjvw2D

Today I received a briefing on the Presidential Infrastructural Development Fund (PIDF), managed by the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA). Through the PIDF our administration is investing hundreds of millions of dollars in critical road infrastructure across Nigeria.

I thank the Governors of Plateau, Lagos and Nasarawa States for enacting disability laws and establishing Disability Rights Commissions; I am calling on Governors of Yobe, Kano & Kogi to implement their laws, while those States that are yet to do so should take necessary action.

I am happy to have fulfilled my promise to the community of Persons with Special Needs, by assenting to the Disability Bill. We have also inaugurated a National Commission for Persons with Disabilities, to take the work to the next level, and implement our vision in full.

Indeed there cannot be sustainable development without infrastructural development. Nigeria will continue to honour all its obligations in the relationship with the People’s Republic of China.

Yesterday I received Mr Wang Yi, State Councillor and Foreign Minister of the People’s Republic of China. Nigeria is grateful to China for its support to us in infrastructure, defence, and others. China is helping us to reduce our severe infrastructural deficit, and we are glad. https://t.co/za5dlLLG6H

I am pleased to note that we are making progress, with the support of all the key stakeholders, including Ministries, the various Agencies, and the Central Bank of Nigeria. We will continue to scale up our interventions, and ensure we cushion the economic impact of the pandemic.

The Vice President briefed me on the progress so far in the implementation of our Economic Sustainability Plan (ESP). We’re supporting artisans and small businesses with grants and salaries; we will also be delivering low-cost houses to Nigerians, as well as Solar Home Systems. https://t.co/rrsAj24p2Q

I commend the sustained mutual understanding, collaboration and high-level engagements between officials of the Executive and Legislative Arms of Government, which have made the accelerated enactment of these Bills possible.

I would like to express my appreciation to the National Assembly, again, for their gracious understanding and speedy action on this matter.

To ensure full implementation of the 2020 Capital Budget and optimize its contribution to our economic revival efforts, the National Assembly recently approved our request to allow MDAs to continue to expend released funds for their 2020 capital budgets till 31st March, 2021.

This commendable outcome underscores the importance of our efforts, together with the Legislature, to return to the discipline of a January-to-December fiscal year.

As at Dec 2020, we had released about N1.748 trillion out of a total of the N1.962 trillion voted for the implementation of critical capital projects, representing a performance of about 89.1%. The overall performance of the 2020 Budget currently stands at an impressive 97.7%.

Let me share a brief assessment of the 2020 Budget. In spite of the adverse impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic on Nigeria’s economy and the Government’s revenues, we have made appreciable progress in its implementation.

In designing the 2021 Budget, we deliberately chose to pursue an expansionary fiscal policy. We intend to use the Budget to accelerate our economic recovery process, promote social inclusion and strengthen the resilience of the economy.
